New Line Cinema will release Fruit Ninja film, first plot details revealed


Drain your brain batteries

As we previously reported, there is a film adaptation of Fruit Ninja in the works because money. The film rights have been picked up by New Line Cinema because produce and money, too.

In the brief Hollywood Reporter piece on this news, there's a tease about the plot of the film which is being co-written by J.P. Lavin and Chad Damiani. According to THR, the film "will revolve around a team of misfits who are recruited to become Fruit Ninjas in order to save the world."

Well, that is one way to do it, I suppose. One very generic way.

I was assuming there'd be some kind of town/village martial arts tournament of some kind in which some goofy kid trains in the art of fruitjutsu to defend himself/herself and learn a little bit about life. Basically The Karate Kid with more fruit and less pan flute. This is another way to do it, albeit also a very generic way.

Then again, it could also be about a meeting and interview between Sean Penn and El Fruit Ninja, a notorious produce lord.

How would you make a Fruit Ninja movie if you had to? Let us know in the comments. Also, eat more vegetables.
